How to make delicious homemade fresh lemon curd

List of ingredients needed:

2 lemons.
3/4 cup of sugar.
2/3 cup of lemon juice.
3 eggs.
2 egg yolks.
6 tablespoons of melted butter.

Preparation instructions:

Remove the zest from the lemons in thin strips with sharp swivel-bladed vegetable peeler.

Place the zest and sugar in a food processor and process until minced (about 20-30 seconds).

Place the sugar mixture, lemon juice, eggs, egg yolks and butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Mix until smooth using a whisk. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon but does not come to a boil (about 8-9 minutes).

Transfer the curd to a fine-mesh strainer; strain.

Place plastic wrap on the surface of the curd; allow to cool completely then refrigerate, covered airtight.
